Marking displays E-ink

Remember that the replacement screen e-book is hard work and if you are not confident in their abilities, it is best to contact your service center. The authors are not responsible for your actions in implementing the recommendations written on the page.

Before replacing the screen to make out an e-book, take off her old (damaged) screen and find on a flexible cable marking model. This marking is necessary to order a new e-ink screen. You can learn how to decode the marking here. Just enter the screen model in the search box of any search engine and choose a favourite shop spare parts.

If the shell halves are held reader to snap, leaving no scratches on them, instead of a screwdriver Expand the joint between the plastic card. After the back cover is opened to disconnect and remove the battery. Next, the loosen connector lock loop flexible display by hooking on both sides of a thin screw driver. Now disable the ribbon cable from the connector. Then, the printed circuit board can be removed for access to the display.

In some models of electronic readers the display is glued tocircuit board and it has to literally "scrub away" bit by bit. Shards of broken glass screen are very acute and thin. It is better to use thin gloves when you are working, so as not to cut your hands.

Before installing the new e-Ink display with base concrete must be removed all the broken glass, dust and other foreign objects. Any piece of glass or even a grain of sand that gets between the main circuit board unit and the screen can cause it to faults again.

Please always remember that the e-ink screen is very thin and fragile and even small deformations it breaks down.



Connector E-ink display with put on and off trail

Every batch of screens has a residual charge compensation voltage VCON, which is from 1.00 to 2.5 V. The required value of the voltage is indicated on the screen in a separate loop tag (look at the upper photo). If after installing the new display the screen is not clean and there's a big amount of "rubbish" you've to regulate the voltage of VCON. In some models of e-books is a resistor on the board of the device for regulating it, in other models is is done programmatically with a help of special utilities.

If the voltage of VCON on the tag of new screen is different from the old one less than on 0.3 V, probably, regulating won't be necessary.

It's important to know, that some manufacturers of e-books in different series of devices can install different models of screens. Before ordering the screen disassemble your reader and verify in the valdity of data of the table. It's necessary!

Be attentive when you order a new screen as displays with additional functions of backlight and sensor have the same markings as displays without these functions. The only difference is the appearance - the number of flexible cables. Compare the photo in the site of the shop with the screen of your e-book.

You can learn more about the purpouse and location of flexible cables here.

Charlaine Harris "Day Shift". Welcome to Midnight, Texas. It's a quiet little town, perched at the junction between Davy Road and Witch Light Road, and it's easy to miss. With its boarded-up windows, single traffic light and sleepy air, there's nothing special about Midnight . . . which is exactly how the residents like it. So when the news comes that a new owner plans to renovate the run-down, abandoned old hotel in town, it's not met with pleasure. Who would want to come to Midnight, with its handful of shops, the Home Cookin diner, and quiet residents - and why? But there are bigger problems in the air. When Manfred Bernado, the newest resident in town, is swept up in a deadly investigation suddenly the hotel and its residents are the least of the towns concern. The police, lawyers and journalists are all headed to Midnight, and it's the worst possible moment...
